Thank you for your interest, you are indeed one of the first 100 people to contact me, so you can certainly reserve your spot.

As stated in the craigslist advert, we need participants that are willing to take a popular diet pill on a daily basis for thirty days. Everyday we will be recording any differences, and finish the study at the 30th day. If you don't want your name used publicly in the study, then please say so. At the same time, we will compensate you $1500 for your participation. This will be paid in check, on the last day.

We will meet a total of four times, and the times will depend on your availability time. Meeting places will be at a local gym of your choice.

The popular diet pill has been featured in many T.V stations and this weight loss product has been used by several famous people. We were lucky enough to have them offer a trial product for us.

4) Once you received the trial product, we will set up a personal meeting with you, discuss further details, and answer any questions you may have. At this point our study will begin also.

5) This study is open to both men and women.

6) Always contact us on this email for any client support or if you have any questions.
